This beautiful 28 page handmade book is a meditation on the spiritual symbol and sacred sound of Om. Containing a golden rust brown OM and a silver Paisley design on each page, reading the book becomes a repetition of the mantra 28 times. Hand woodblock printed on lush, thick handmade paper. The book is handsewn.
Om is said to be “the sound of the universe”, it is the un-manifest and manifest expression of the Divine, and has the power to create on all levels. Meditating on, humming, or chanting Om is a deeply transformative practice. I love mantras – their power and their beauty. This book is part of my creative exploration of mantras.
I hand stamped the images with wood blocks on handmade cream coloured, thick 300 gr. handmade Khadi paper, the deckle edge is kept on one side. The cover is 300 gr brown kraft card. The book is hand sewn with linen thread and the ties are finished with natural jade beads.
